AstroCreative readings/reports provide insights into who you are as a person—and who you are as a creative—by analyzing the astrological influences/characteristics evident in your personal birth (natal) chart.

++AstroCreative readings are much more than just charts and reports; AstroCreative readings include a specific creativity reading authored by Bev in tandem with your chart and general interpretation.

++As part of your personal consultation, Bev will cast your birth (natal) chart and discuss your astrological characteristics as they relate to your personality as well as your writing and overall creativity.

++Bev uses her unique brand of intuition and creativity to add a splash of originality to her astrological readings. As a professional author, she is able to relate to and understand writers and other creatives.

++In order to render a client’s natal chart and creativity reading, clients must provide accurate data (date of birth, time of birth* and location of birth). PLEASE NOTE: If no birth time is available, the chart will not include information on the ascendant (rising) sign.

++ AstroCreative readings are for entertainment/information purposes only. Progress and/or success as a writer is solely dependent upon each individual client/writer and his/her actions or decisions in the individual field of expertise.

++No guarantees, implied or otherwise, will be made regarding the information, suggestions, opinions and/or advice discussed with clients regarding their personal and/or professional lives.

Grab a copy of my book, Hidden Fire, now available in my Etsy shop ;-)

The ebook version of Hidden Fire, a contemporary romance I wrote under my pen name Star Ferris, is now available in my online Etsy shop, Nocturnal Divination.

Originally published by Whiskey Creek Press (WCP) in 2009, I now own the rights and it’s been republished under the )0( Triple Crow Publishing )0( imprint.

Hidden Fire was a finalist in the Fiction from the Heartland contest at the Mid-America Romance Authors (MARA) conference in Kansas City, MO. It went on to sell to a traditional publisher and was released in June 2009.

Based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, this book is full of suspense, intrigue, family secrets, and old-fashioned romance. There’s a headstrong heroine and a hunky hero — and sizzling sex, too!

Marking time, or living life?

Thoughts for the day:

No guts, no glory. But really, who cares about the glory? I don’t. Having the guts and inner fortitude to do, say, act upon something reinforces that I’ve accomplished something. Taking a step, speaking a word, or following a path that many others were too fearful to tread upon is what matters most to me. Being authentic and genuine is the best gift I can give to others, as well as to myself.

We all have stories to tell about things that have happened in our past, things that have cemented who we are and why we say or do things the way we do. There is no competition with anyone else, because there is nobody else like you — period.

Will you speak your mind, or remain silent?

Will you explore, or remain satisfied by what others tell you?

Will you ask challenging questions, or will you remain cozy in the downy comfort of stories (and lies) you have been told?

Will you grow a metaphorical spine, or will you remain spineless?

Will you put your thoughts out there (even if they shock or repel), or will you stay silent, muted, and loyal to the status quo?

The choices are up to you. You came into this world alone, and you will leave alone. What you do in between is, ultimately, in your hands.

It is a harsh truth, and one I’m still learning. But at some point you must leave the shadows and gaze at the bright, piercing sun — even if it hurts your eyes, or your soul.

What will you do, or what will you not do?

Are you living life, or simply marking time?
I don’t want to just mark time…I want to live life on my own terms.

Living as intended

The other night we watched clips of the popular ’70s (and beyond) dance show, “Soul Train,” with Don Cornelius. I miss those days when things seemed more innocent and simpler. Of course, I was a young child, so it wasn’t truly the case. It’s just that the world hadn’t yet had a chance to fully get its claws in me and I hadn’t seen the many horrors I’ve now been exposed to in my fifty years of life.

I miss the times when all I had to worry about was finishing a report for school or whether a cute boy I liked would like me back so we could “go” together. You know, life could be uncomplicated, but we humans utterly insist on making it such.

I think it’s possible to live without pain, drama, and crisis in our lives. When we live with those things, we get sick…mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. I don’t want to be sick. I want to be well. I want to live as I was intended to live, with joy, hope, and creativity.

Do you?

Celebrating nearly 18 years of freelancing

Just realized that, in three weeks, I will celebrate 18 (yes, that’s EIGHTEEN) years as a freelance writer, editor, and writing instructor. In May 1997, I left my job in municipal government, where I worked in utility billing AND the police department, to set out on my own.

One of the best perks of freelancing is that I am able to set my own schedule. That made it easy for me to attend my kids’ school and extracurricular events. BIG plus. I think it made a difference in their lives (at least I hope it did).

It has NOT been easy. I wouldn’t recommend it for most people, in fact. However, it’s been rewarding, surprising, and unpredictable (in good ways and bad — but mostly good!) Hardest job you’ll ever love, methinks.

Where does the time go?!
